I’ve been seeing a ton of Metallic lately. A part of me is so excited to get back into winter gear.. I’m predicting metallics, navy blues/maroons/deep nudes/contrast, and a little sparkle. So, so, so excited. Here are a few goodies to feast your eyes on until then. ox – M
I just wanted to reach out to all of you and send my sincerest gratitude for bearing with us these past weeks. You can never anticipate what life will throw at you and I believe it’s safe to say that it’s been a rough year for the majority of us. While we’ve all been catching up with life… we’re finally returning from our small hiatus. The support and comments have meant so much to us. We’re excited to show more of a variety of things this year, new experiments and upcoming artists. Thank you for hanging tight and staying the truest of fans. I’m looking at you, Pinterest supporters!
So, let’s cut to the chase… I rolled upon a really awesome website/blog. SaboSkirt.com is equal parts blog and fashion store. You’ll find the latest trends on a weekly basis. I find their style simple, girly, fresh and comfortable. You’ll fall in love with their tiny cross bracelets, knit tops and fun shorts. I’m always a fan of pastels and soft colors – so you’ll find it easy to pair pieces on their website. Check out a few of my faves below and be sure to visit their store for more items. saboskirt.com
Ok so I am pretty much in LOVE LOVE LOVE w/anything that Nicola Formichetti does because:
A) He’s everything
2) He’s the creative director for Theirry Mugler
D) He’s like, Gaga’s bestie!
Anywho. I’m always excited to see what he puts together for Mugler’s shows and of course he did not disappoint w/his latest showing in Paris. Ladies and gentlemen, Paris is burning and Nicola is serving us some Fifth Element realness here.
All in all I am living for this line and must own every piece of it. If there’s anyone who can make this happen please do so. You can find my contact info in the about us page. Wink wink, nudge nudge.
That is all.
Alright tweekers if you haven’t already jumped on the Instagram bandwagon then there’s no hope for you. Honestly, everyone and their mother is on it now, which means that everyone thniks they’re a photographer. Le sigh. It’s actually quite annoying. Also, I do have to say that as an iPhone user I am a bit prejudiced, and feel a little violated that the Android users can now partake in the instafun!
Anyways, amongst the pictures of food, kittens, and half naked hipster girls there are quite a couple of gems that shine brightly for fashion tweekers. Unlike most other social networking websites/apps that exist, I actually find use for the Instagram. You see, the thing is that I don’t understand why people have to constantly update their statuses or check into their waxing appointments etc. and want to share that kind of information with the world. Honestly I could care less that your hoo-hah is freshly waxed, or that your girlfriend left you for someone with a better credit score. I’ve always been a somewhat disinterested person unless it has to do with me.
As most of us know the Instagram let’s you upload pictures, and add old timey effects to them to give them that perfect vintage vibe. It’s also a great tool for us fashionistas to upload the trends that we love, as well as get style inspiration!
I’ve discovered many a great accounts that fulfill my fashion fix better than anyone could imagine. Here’s just a couple:
QPCollections (they offer handmade neckties and bow ties that I must get my hands on! )
Also, the other day I had one of my insomnia ridden Stumble Upon sessions and stumbled upon this ultra chic website called Printstagram, that lets you print out the pictures that you have on the Instagram. Now you can share those awesomely artistic pictures of your cooking, yourself holding your phone in front of the bathroom mirror, or those sunsets in many different forms. Amongst the items you can transfer your pictures onto are t-shirts, mini booklets, stickers, and old people. No not old people. I think that may be illiegal.
Anyways, I have yet to try this out, but as soon I start taking pictures of things other than my Kim Kardashian impressions I shall print something out. For more details in prices and such check out the website. Printstagram. And if any of you fashion tweekers happen to purchase any prints let us know how they turned out.
That is all.

That is all.
Hi, Dolls! I hope you all enjoyed your Memorial Day weekend and a sincere thank you to all of those who fight for our country and for our freedom! Aside from trying to catch up on some beauty sleep, I couldn’t resist my favorite Memorial Day sales. I’m really digging these high-low collared chiffon blouses. They’re comfortable, professional and can transformed easily from day-to-night. I’m finding a lot of them in TJ Maxx and Forever 21. Here is a Piece-by-piece breakdown:
- Beige polka dot high-low button down shirt (Marshalls)
- Mint Skinnies (can be found at Target, Forever21 or H&M)
- Jessica Simpson Fuschia peep-toes with Gold heel
- Teal vintage clutch
Don’t call it a come back! Whats good people? Noche Here with your fix for anything sneaker/urban/graphic related. Man its been a great year so far, and just like us the people over at Team Jordan are just barely scratching the surface with some crazy exclusives that will melt any sneakerhead’s heart.
With the retro Air Jordan 4s at the helm of this sneaker juggernaut, 2012 is shaping up to be one of the illest years for sneakers period. Now if you were one of the lucky ones you may have already copped the “cement” and “cavs” fours.
Air Jordan 4 “Cement”
Air Jordan 4 “Cavs”

So happy hunting and as always stay fresh my friends and remember.
Dope is as dope does!
Alright tweekers we’ve all been MIA for a while. We apologize for that, but we’re all slowly getting back into the groove of things so expect some amazing posts in the coming weeks.
This post is long over due, and frankly I couldn’t be more dipleased with myself for not posting about this subject sooner. This post is all about suits! If I’ve learned anything during my Netflix marathons of How I Met Your Mother, it’s that every man should own a suit.
The most important men in history have sported suits. Barrack Obama, John F. Kennedy, Mr. Magoo, and also Pee Wee Herman. Without a good suit you do not exist. Suits are everything and if you don’t own at least one, kill yourself. Just Kidding. Don’t do that. I may be held responsible for involuntary manslaughter.
Anyways, I’m going to keep it short and simple and highlight certain points from a GQ post that I read a while ago.
The Cheat Sheet
• A suit’s gotta fit right or it isn’t worth wearing.
• In order to make sure that it does fit right, find yourself a good tailor.
• You’ll never go wrong wearing at two-button suit with a fairly narrow lapel. It’s both classic and completely modern.
• Flat-front, relatively trim pants; very little break at the ankle.
• You should be able to easily cup your hands beneath the hem of the jacket; if you can’t, it’s too long.
• Show some cuff. It’s the mark of a (well-dressed) gentleman.
• Dress with the season—cotton suits in summer; tweeds, flannels, and corduroys in winter.
• If you’re going to wear a patterned suit, keep the patterns subtle. You want a smart suit, not a kooky one.
• If you ever can afford to get a bespoke suit, get one made. It’s worth every penny.
Check out the rest of this GQ post.
And as our fellow brother Barney Stinson would say. Suit up tweekers!
That is all.
Hey Dolls! It’s been awhile! I feel like part of me has been missing.. kinda like leaving your favorite red lipstick at home. Just doesn’t feel right. Your SC family has been on a small hiatus, due to a ton of work and new career challenges.. for us all. BUT we’re back and better than ever! So let’s get on to the good stuff..
So, after you’ve picked up your jaw from the floor.. I want to tell you where you can get the same look for a lot less (Neon Prada pumps go for a measly $720.00.. pocket change!), so I’ve picked two online stores that are relatively close in comparison. We’re well aware that Urbanog.com and lulus.com are my go-to sites for finding items at a steal. So i’m going to let you decide. Who do you think took to the challenge better?
Lulus.com: price at $29.00
Urbanog.com: priced at $25.60
I’m kind of late posting this because I’ve been meaning to do it since about a month ago. So, there’s this new artist that everyone should definitely keep on their radar. His name is Zebra Katz, and his song Ima Read was featured in many a runway show during Paris Fashion Week. Not to mention I’m in love with that above picture of him. Serving some Grace Jones realness.
This song is sickening to say the least. I swear it puts me in a trance and I haven’t gotten it out of my head since the first time I heard it. It’s damn catchy and it’s introduced many a people to a phrase known throughout the gay Vogueing and ballroom world.
Reading is the act of mocking someone in a humorous manner. Anyone familiar with Rupauls Drag Race should be well versed in the art of reading.
The song also features Njena Redd Foxxx. The two together create this cosmic sinister energy that can only be described by a word that’s not a word at all. Eartasticly-gasmic.
The video is so chic it makes me want to throw up. It’s like The Grudge meets Candy Man meets my dreams. Peep it and you’ll see exactly what I mean.
Remember fashion tweekers, dancing is a form of exercise. Exercise gives people endorphins, endorphins make people happy. Happy people don’t shoot their husbands. They just don’t.
That is all.
Well, it’s been ages since I’ve posted, please forgive me tweekers. It’s been hectic for a while now and I finally have some time to write a legit post to inform all of you of all the chicness that’s been happening. Between actually working, and handling adulthood I’ve been kind of out if it. I’m sure many of you checked out Melissa’s post detailing our first ever GQ Night. Hopefully next year we’ll get an even bigger turnout.
Moving on to matters of the present lets get real here tweekers. Being chic is not only about keeping up to date with the latest trends, but also about giving back to the community. Nothing says chic like a good charitable cause. Recently I met someone who works at a local thrift store that I frequent and she gave me the tea about a fundraiser she’s put together. It’s equal parts fashion and charity, with an all around dose of chicness.
The event is called Art Angels, and what it is, is an event to raise money and donate art supplies for a program called Through Angels Eyes. The program is an art therapy program for children with terminal illnesses and their families. As best stated by TAE “Sadly some children will never be old enough or healthy enough to go to school, and make countless works of art for the refrigerator. For those families (Through Angles Eyes) art therapy program steps in to ensure that each child becomes the artist in one gentle way or another.”
The event will be held at Stigma Tattoo Bar in downtown Orlando on April 21st, 2012. All that is asked is to make a monetary, or art supply donation. When you donate you will be given a raffle ticket, and there will be prizes given throughout the night donated by local businesses. Among other festivities that will be going on will be live body painting, a live art show, and two Dechoes Resale fashion shows.
Trust me this is an even worth going to. I got to preview the clothing that will be shown, and it’s everything. Think Absolutley Fabulous with a punk edge. Very Edina and Patsy meets the Sex Pistols.
For those of you who can’t attend an event unless alcohol is involved then you’ll be happy to hear about the drink specials. There wll be $2 Smirnoff specialty shots, given out by the body painted models. Half of the proceeds will be donated to the art therapy program, so your Lohanism is actually being encouraged.
The fundraiser begins at 9pm with catering from 9-11 and ends at 2am. It will be held at Stigma Tattoo Bar in downtown Orlando and is 21+ only. Stigma is located at:
17 S Orange Ave, Orlando FL 32801
If you cannot be in attendance you can make contributions to the program via their website. ThroughAngelsEyes.org
And none of this would be possible without the vision of Sierra Missed who put the event together.
Remember to give back tweekers. It’s our duty as trendsetters to have people follow in our good doing. We are the messiah. Or not, whatever.
That is all.
